The Second Generation of Trusol Practitioners
I’ve just received a multimedia message from Susan and I’d like to share this news with you. Susan and a few of my students have recently been selected by the Trusol group to join the team. Today, they are out and about to purchase ritual items and also get their uniforms done.
Dear Rinpoche, Now we’re taking measurements to make uniform. Jamie loaned us hers as sample design for the tailor to follow. We are using the same tailor to make these uniforms. Susan
The 2nd Trusol group members in Kechara Paradise SS2 to purchase ritual items
Trusol is a sacred ritual of ‘bathing’ the Buddhas and consecration. In reality, Buddhas do not need to be bathed, but practitioners and patrons cleanse their own negativities, sicknesses and obstacles through this ritual. This ritual is commonly done to bless and consecrate Buddha images, temples, or premises.
It is important for people to know how to do these sacred and blessed rituals. It can benefit many people. Trusol can be done at new premises to clear out negative energies or beings. It should be done at old premises also to bless the environment and all objects within. It is a great way to purify a premise by gentle and simple method. All buildings, houses, apartments, offices should have the good fortune to have a Trusol done on site.
In the year 2008, I taught a small group of 5 students this ritual that I had received from my Guru, the great Abbot Emeritus of Gaden Shartse Monastery, His Eminence Kensur Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche. I taught them the ritual initially for the purpose of blessing the land for the future Kechara World Peace Centre. I hope that this holy lineage and practice can be held by and passed down to local Malaysian practitioners, thus creating local ritual masters here.
The first group of students who have learned Trusol has since performed various blessings and consecrations within and outside the Kechara organisation, and is now ready to train up the second batch of Trusol-ers in Kechara. You can watch a video of them practicing here, back in 2008:

I am happy that more people are learning this sacred ritual and I hope the Trusol newbies will learn the rituals well and train up more people in the future. The Trusol newbies are: Shirley Tan of Ladrang special projects, Fang Chang of Kechara Media & Publications, Dr Lanse Chiah of Kechara Media & Publications, Susan, Jace Chong of Kechara InMotion and Tan Gim Lee of Kechara House.
